Last Friday AlterNet‘s Steve Rosenfield and others began writing about a pair of 45-minute Dutch-produced docs focused on President Donald Trump, one of which alleges that Trump has “extensive connections to Russia’s ruling oligarchs and a history of illegal racketeering.”
Doc #1, The Dubious Friends of Donald Trump, Part 1: The Russians, broke last week. Produced by Zembla, it examines Trump’s alleged relationship with, among others, Russian mobster Felix Sater and the people behind Bayrock LLC.
Rosenfield says it also examines Trump’s arrangements with wealthy Russians involved in elaborate pyramid–style money laundering. The financial trail raises questions about whether Trump canned FBI director James Comey “because the FBI’s investigation of his campaign’s collusion with Russia was encroaching into Trump’s world of dark money and dubious business partners.'”
Zembla has also released The King of Diamonds, which reportedly “explores Trump’s relationship with Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev, who is suspected of trading in blood diamonds.”
